1. Total stupidity, "pals" work in Israel but keep out Israeli
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (10.26.12)
goods. The number of work permits should be ZERO until all Israeli products can be sold in the West Bank. How long would the pressure take, maybe a couple weeks.
2. But I thought...
F Callen ,   Scotland   (10.26.12)
...Palestinian civil society demanded boycott, divestment and sanctions? seems they don't get the same unemployment benefits their western "supporters" get.
3. Excellent chance to pay "Palestinians" to leave forever.
Chaim ,   Israel   (10.26.12)
Rather than giving "Palestinians" jobs; Israel should pay them to leave. This is a one time investment with permanent returns.
4. #2 Now you know
Cynthia ,   USA   (10.26.12)
And they have their dhimmis working overtime to bring flotillas and boycott the hand that feeds them. The boycotts result in fewer jobs for the Palestinians because Israel remains their primary labor market. Then the Palestinians whine about how they're so terribly treated by Israel as they fire kassam rockets at their employers.
5. Deman 2 things from Pali's first b4 giving work:
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (10.27.12)
They must seek and want peace and they must accept Israel as a Jewish state.
6. If they're hungry enough they can
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (10.27.12)
cook their shoes & belts for all I care
7. In Associated Press they haven't heard of shabahim?
me   (10.27.12)
shabahim (shohim bilti huki'im) - This word refers in Hebrew to people who stay in Israel without a permit. Israel is FULL of Palestinians from the west bank who cross into Israel not though the regulated checkpoints and work and stay in it without a permit. Only a few months ago such young Palestinian brutally raped a girl in Tel Aviv (and also abused her boyfriend).
8. Emad Misbah has said he will dig our graves for a long time
Ahmad Cohen ,   Ibn Mousa HaLevy   (10.28.12)
And it turned out to be true
9. work permits
eddiE ,   sa   (10.28.12)
Make them sign a an official declaration stating that they accept Israel legitimacy and state that Israel must not be harmed by anyone etc etc .and have this published in newspapers in the west bank together with their real names and that of their wives and childres etc. ....otherwise no work permit, Which means that if they want something from Israel they must give back something more than their labour.Let this be an exercise to change arab perceptions a little of what Israel means to them.
10. BUT Pals calling for boycotts of Israeli Goods and Agri
Alan ,   SA   (10.28.12)
11. What stupidity. US did not let Nazis work in US during WW2
Dr. L. Brnd ,   San Diego, USA   (10.29.12)
Its not enough to not have "a record of anti-Israel activity". Either they each sign a statement recognizing Israel as a Jewish State with unified Jerusalem as its capital - or they can go pound sand in their Islamic hellhole. There is not a shred of evidence that the "occupation" or settlements prevent them from having a normal economy - look at Gaza. Israel left, gave them the settlement greenhouses and industries to help them have an economy, and they turned the irrigation oipes into Kassam rockets. WB arabs will do exactly the same as soon as they get a chance, no matter how many billions they are given. The answer is an automous zone - with the Jordan rift valley strip annexed by Israel - that either lives in peace with israel - or NO electricity, fuel, water or access to israeli crossings, ports, airspace or anything else. Only on condition of good behavior. They had their chance and blew it. Oslo is a complete failure, Israel benefited not one bit. PA got Land-for-nothing, not land-for-peace. Intel intercepts show clearly the PLO, Arafat and Abbas NEVER intended to honor a peace deal - Oslo was only a military tactic.
12. If they get work permits , it's a sign that
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (10.29.12)
Israelis NEED them to do the jobs Israelis themselve don't want to fullfill . We can also bring Asian people , yes , but they need a long term contract , the contrary to the palestinian people .
13. #12 Charles, you forgot one fact
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (10.29.12)
Unlike the Arabs, Asians in Israel haven’t been found wearing explosive vests or engaged in acts of terror or sabotage, they don't present a danger to our wellbeing In the long run, what value can be placed of the life of an Israeli? There is no such thing as a "Free Lunch"
